Sometimes I spell something with the clippings, to give the pilots something to read.

I mow horizontally a few times, then vertically a few times.  A couple of times I tried diagonally, but it didn't last long.

 

Will, my yard isn't big enough to spell anything.  It might make a punctuation mark. lol

I have over an acre of lawn, and I break it down in 4 sections. The West section I mow North and South, The Back section is mowed East to West, The East Section is mowed North and South, and the South Section is mowed East To West.

 Broke down that way so I can get the longest run without turning.

I cut my lawns like its a golf green!! And when we have a drought it stays greener longer than any of my neighbors. My theory is it doesn't need a lot of water if its short, and because it's stiffer down low it cuts off much cleaner thus healing faster and I don't have that brown scab that grass usually gets when its cut haggered.
also try to avoid repeating the same pattern, as my rig is heavy and would leave rutts for sure.

For a full monty, I start with the weed wacker and trim the fence line inside and out, around all trees and the house, storm celler and shop. Then I get the push mower and make the trim line wider, and mow inbetween the cars and narrow areas, and around and under the trees and bushes. Last I ride the property in the same clock wise pattern with some varations depending on how I mahe the turns, or if I need to reverse to CCW because of clumping.
